I think they intend to stay attached to the ISS for 120 days or so.

I read something like that also. But from watching Space X and Elon Musk I figure they are going to touch down.
And reuse that capsule, Musk is very flamboyant in anything he does.

Got it. Missed your question at first. Water landing.

Space X seems far ahead of Boeing. Boeing’s last flight was pretty sad. Like, don’t they test the flight software in a simulator before flying?

The Dragon did bring a few essentials, like tooth paste the ISS was plum out of it.

Actually Crew Dragon can carry up to seven astronauts. But NASA has limited that to only four. Russia is saying they won't
fly a cosmonaut on it until it is flight proven. Are we going to charge them, what is now 85 million for that ride?
Boeing and Russia are starting to sound like their feelings are hurt lol.

Rumor has the Crew Dragon delivering copper, corn and sugar to the cosmonauts. NASA baffled. Russians claim science experiment.

I knew if that thing could hold seven people, it would have room for some stuff. Never waist a good launch.
Lots of contraband in some of those Cargo Dragon shipments. A pecan pie from Georgia lol.
Send more!!
